His brown hair is always in a crew-cut. He wears a goatee that he keeps neatly trimmed and occasionally lets his whiskers grow to a five-o'clock shadow. His brown eyes seem to have a twinkle when he's happy and appear to turn black when he loses his temper.

Harry was born in a small town in Illinois. As a child he spent most of his time with neighbors while his parents worked. When he did spend time with his parents, they were usually either yelling at each other or at him.
Harry began spending most of his time alone in his room. He entertained himself by taking his toys apart and trying to put them back together again. Eventually he started taking bigger and bigger things apart. It made him happy to take things apart and put them back together and have them still work.
As a teen, he found a job with a small equipment repair company. He spent a lot of his time there watching the more experienced people work. He learned as much as he could while there, but soon realized that he wanted more. This led him to apply for Starfleet Academy.
At the Academy, Harry had difficulty making friends. It usually depressed him when the others would start talking about their families. Harry soon withdrew from the social groups and spent most of his time working on special projects. He almost lost his place at the Academy when he was caught trying to disassemble one of the Academy’s shuttles. He managed to put the shuttle back together and actually made it work better than it did before. As a result, the Academy gave him a verbal warning and let the issue go.
